  • Description

    A new type of horseshoe is now being produced to prevent injury to horses running and training on hard ground. The inventor of the 'supershoe' -- and the first trainers to use it -- feel that this development could bring about a significant change in horse racing and other equestrian sports.

    SYNOPSIS: Inventor Ron Saffron has been trying out the 'supershoe' at Lucknam Park Stud near Bath. He explained how the idea first came about.

    Reporter Phil Lines asked race horse owner John Bradshaw if he felt the new type of shoe would make a significant change in equestrian sports.
